Nowadays occasionally. Ever since CN and TPCi dubbing...have grown irritated and frustrated with the dub work. VA change is what made me go from almost religiously watching show to only barely watching it. I'm used to and accept it however I do not like it or think it was a good thing in hindsight. Rather 4Kids have kept Pokemon license thinking hard about it, edits and all, but I digress- I don't watch Pokemon as much as before because of the regression of Ash, the predictability and simplicity to the point of no progression, and of course the current VAs who, while not bad anymore, are so painfully average and merely tolerable/decent that they do little to improve quality and experience of show. Eric Stuart's James in AG alone seemed to be more interesting than the voiceovers these days: there's no spark or enthusiasm to them. No character or going the extra mile. "Such a little kid!" is not what I mean or "It's evaluation time!" I mean actually sounding like you are the character as opposed to playing a character, so to speak. Also the choppy 30 sec intros do little to help keep my interest. Even the dub scripts aren't as entertaining.
Despite 4Kids alterations to the scripts, I like the fun they had and prefer the script changes the former English dub made as opposed to the current ones. Really do like 4Kids take on the anime the best, as unpopular an opinion as it may be lol. No offense to TPCi dub lovers intended.

I agree completely with Poliwhirl. You do the EXACT thing I do. It's almost scary XD
With Pokemon as with most shows I like, I go through phases of watching random episodes and phases of not watching the show and just obsessing over the franchise.
Keep on kicking butt, Yuzu!
Keep on kicking butt, Yuzu!
When I can
Pokémon used to air every evening in Brazil and I've watched every episode of the original series, but when things moved to Advanced, I was moving and had no tv, so I only got to see it again about one episode before the Mirage Kingdom/Misty arc, but I actually had a chance to catch up when my local video store got this really cool box set of the entire season up to the Mirage Kingdom, aaand then I lost track one more time after we moved again, and the next episode I could watch was the last Ash vs Juan one, so I decided to move into the japanese episodes and was able to watch the whole Advanced Generation from start to finish in japanese, it turned out to be my favorite saga, despite the turmoil.
Nowadays, I watch the new japanese episodes every week, around saturday.
I found a website that has every episode to date and have been trying to watch every episode in order. I'm on Season 7 at the moment!
Since I started catching up with it, I try to get in at least 5 episodes a day or so.
It depends on whether I'm excited by what's going on or not. Back during the league in Sinnoh, I was watching episodes when they aired, and sometimes going back to rewatch if the keyhole feed was exceptionally bad. I haven't really felt that way about most of BW. If I think something big, like an evolution, will happen in an episode, I like to watch those live and hopefully not be disappointed. If I hadn't been in Tanzania when the TR stuff was happening a few months ago, I would have been watching that. But the way this league's been going, I'm not watching it.
I sometimes watch it for fun, but I do not have high expectations nor do I follow it actively as I used to before I discovered Pokemon Special. :P
If they show the rivals, elite four, champions and the pokemon league.
I watched with no mistakes from Kanto all the way til the end of Advanced, I then had to move to Cyprus so I caught the Advanced Challenge eps online, then I eventually got cable in Cyprus and watched Advanced Battle and Battle Frontier until the end :) I then moved back to London (haha long story), and watched DP and BW on tv from then on, mostly on Cartoon Network/Disney XD if I catch it... Otherwise I resort to online.
At the moment, since 2 weeks ago, I've been watching the Hoenn saga from the beginning (my favourite Saga, perfect imo), I'm at the end of Advanced Challenge now, and I'm suddenly addicting to watching again? Like I don't know what's going to happen, that why Hoenn's exciting! xD
Before when I was younger, I would watch it after school and woke up early Saturday mornings to watch anime and at times the new episodes.
Today, I still love watching the anime, thanks to the internet, I can watch episodes online any time, if I get a chance to download it I will (just so I can watch them offline on my personal time) and watch on my PS3 - episodes, and movies I still watch a lot. 10 to 30 episodes a day, or 15 episodes and a movie or 2.
I still watch the anime today. New episodes too. Every Saturday when new episodes air, I will watch them if I'm awake, if not, I will watch the episode later when its available online.
Although I seen every episode in English, I'm currently watching episodes from season 15 in order, because Sinnoh and Unova are my favorite seasons.

Whenever I get the urge to especially with episodes I didn't watch from the Johto and Hoenn Episodes as well as the Battle Frontier. I did manage to watch all the Dubbed Kanto and Orange Islands Episodes though. As for Sinnoh I watched a few of them here and there but that's basically it. But I have been keeping up with Unova ever since they showed Meloetta as she is one of my favorite Legends next to Rayquaza. But other than just that I like to see what certain Pokémon look like when they're animated.
